NIC Nurses reunited with graduates and their families at the NICU Reunion and Fall Festival in 2016.

Kingwood, Texas, Oct. 6, 2017– Kingwood Medical Center is inviting our NICU Graduates to attend the eighth Annual NICU Fall Festival Sunday, Oct. 29. All Kingwood Medical Center NICU Graduates are welcome. This year attendees will enjoy music, balloon art, games and lunch. Please call 800-258-5064 to register. Immediate family only are invited to attend, please.

“Caring for premature babies close to home is one of the most exciting parts of our commitment to community,” said Melinda Stephenson, CEO of Kingwood Medical Center. “When babies are in the NICU for extended periods of time the families develop a special bond with the nursing staff, therapists and physicians.  It is both exciting and rewarding to reconnect everyone at this reunion and celebrate their growth and success.”

Kingwood Medical Center’s Neonatologists work with neonatal nurse practitioners who are on the unit 24/7, along with other specially trained registered nurses, respiratory therapists, speech and occupational therapists to monitor and care for each baby and assist them in their continued growth and development in a safe and caring environment. Neonatologists diagnose and treat medical conditions in newborns, coordinate the medical care and management of premature and critically ill infants, and provide care to newborns during a complicated delivery. Until the babies in our NICU are strong and healthy enough to go home to their families, they are part of ours.
